I sustained some kind of shoulder injury a few months back. I say “some kind of injury” because I don’t have insurance, and didn’t have it properly checked. Due to this injury, my entire left arm was weaker than it was previously.
This “injury” was not a traumatic one, but manifested as a slow onset, unrelenting soreness and swelling of the trapezius and rear deltoid on my left side. It also resulted in numbness in the spot between my bicep and tricep on the top part of my left arm. It could have been impingement syndrome, bursitis, rotator cuff tendinitis, trigger points or a combination of all, but one thing’s for sure- it caused nerves to be pinched.
It’s been 2 months since this problem was at it’s peak. I took a month off, now I’m slowly getting my strength back, but all is not normal. My left wrist is still very weak. When I’m doing side laterals, my right hand is in a straight line with my forearm, while my left hand is pointing down.
Anyone have something similar to this? Any tips? I’m hoping I can get this fully resolved some day.
